There are many different forms of Yoga, and the goal of all recognized forms is to improve health and well being.
Yoga is primarily known for improved balance, strength and flexibility as well as mental peace of mind. In addition, other benefits include:
- Improved joint functioning
- Maintains a supple spine
- Strengthens bones
- Increases circulation
- Increases lymph drainage
- Improved cardiovascular conditioning
As you participate in yoga you will notice a gradual loosening of the muscles and connective tissues. This leads to improved body alignment, posture and lessening of aches and pains. Each time you do a pose, your joints move through the full range of motion, squeezing areas of cartilage that normally aren't used. Cartilage is like a sponge, it needs to be squeezed in order to soak in fresh nutrients. Without this, areas of cartilage wear out and underlying bone may become exposed.
The discipline that regular practise builds, translates to greater self-esteem, better ability to make decisions, and greater insights into yourself.
